Custom made hunting knife by Bladepoint using a factory NKD Korpi blade.
The NDK Korpi is probably the first fulltang version modeled after the world known Finnish Tommi Puukko. There are few absolute rules about Tommi puukkos, there are as many types as there are makers. Though, they are always slender without fingerguard and a relatively straight handle. The blades are also slim, blade widths around 19-20mm are common with varying lengths. Taking heavy inspiration from the legendary puukko model, this NKD fulltang version makes it much easier to make your own Tommi Puukko with a twist.
The NKD Tommi is made in Sandviks stainless 14C28N steel. While relatively unknown, 14C28N steel is an upgrade from Sandviks own 12C27 which is used by many manufacturers worldwide. Both steels have a relatively low carbon content of around 0,6%, but with the addition of Nitrogen to 14C28N it allows the steel reach a higher level of hardness. The nitrogen addition also improves the steels corrosion resistance and edge retention.
After his exit as co-owner of Brisa, Dennis Holmbacka started Nordic Knife Design. Founded by a veteran in the knife industry as designer and tradesman, NKD might be a new name, but there is decades of experience behind it. NKD knives are often minimalistic in details and sport a sleek appearance, traits many would call traditional Scandinavian design. Form following function. NKD utilizes the best factories used by many other top brands. There is no question of quality with these knife blades.

Everything but the blade is handmade in the Bladepoint workshop.
The black walnut is off-cut material from a high end furniture factory minimizing waste. After shaping and hand sanding, the walnut gets two coats of danish oil allowing to dry and sand down the fibers in between coats. Danish oil is a very good option to bring out the life in most wood., It also penetrates and hardens making the wood much more durable in adverse conditions. After the second coat the handles get polished with carnauba wax further protecting the wood and giving it a harder wearing surface.
The sheath is handmade in 3,2mm thick cattle double shoulder vegetable tanned leather. Using leather from the shoulder area give a better consistency compared to sides which are more commonly used. The welt and both parts of the hanger are glued and hand sewn using locking saddle stitching. This means that every individual stitch is held in place with a knot. This technique is far superior to machine stitched seams as the thread will not unravel even if it breaks in one or several places. For the actual stitches we use thick woven terylene thread.
The sheaths are colored and by hand using environmentally friendly water based chemicals. Often we color them with our own color mixes or gradients which become of a kind works. After coloring the sheaths they are protected using sealants, also environmentally friendly.
To guarantee a long service life we recommend that you touch up the protection on both the knife and sheath with use. As we only use non-reactive chemicals, you can apply any suitable wax or oil that complies with wood and leather.
